BHAKTA 1974 Armagnac

BHAKTA 1974 Armagnac

The pure distillation of the year 1974 

BHAKTA 1974 — produced primarily from the grape Ugni Blanc — shows fudge, toasted bread, and mushroom on the nose, followed by rich fruitcake, cocoa, and marzipan on the palate. In history, 1974 was defined by the resignation of President Nixon, the invention of the Rubik's cube, the opening of Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris, and the scanning of the first commercial barcode (item purchased: a package of Wrigley gum).

How to drink it

“In this vintage paradigm, every release is special, limited in quantity — there’s only so much of any given spirit made in any given year.”
“You don’t have to love brandy to love this. . . Terrific sipping and thus an epic preview of things to come from the nascent producer.”
